Schemes for 2017 Texas Longhorns football team[edit]

SCIAC Standings[edit]

How confident are you with the 1926 SCIAC football standings? San Diego State joined the conference that year, and the SDSU media guide reports them having a 1926 record of Overall: 3-4-1, Conf: 1-3-1. University of La Verne joined in 1925, and I show them with a 1926 record of Overall: 3-2-2, Conf: 1-1-2. That would change several schools' records, right?

College football warehouse has CalTech with an overall 4-3-1 record, Occidental with an overall 4-4-1 record, Pomona with an overall 5-2-0 record, and Redlands 0-8-0. All of those would be changes to the existing template.

Thoughts? Ocfootballknut (talk) 02:52, 9 January 2017 (UTC)

Ocfootballknut, here's the source I used, which UW Dawgs dug up. http://static.psbin.com/5/m/x5k85yxyitg1pi/SCIACStandings.pdf. La Verne is first listed in the standings there in 1927. Jweiss11 (talk) 03:08, 9 January 2017 (UTC)
Also, which website exactly did you find those overall record for CalTech, Occidental, Pomona, and Redlands? Jweiss11 (talk) 03:11, 9 January 2017 (UTC)
Cal Tech: http://www.cfbdatawarehouse.com/data/incomplete_data/game_by_game_discontinued.php?teamid=474&year=1926
Occidental: http://www.cfbdatawarehouse.com/data/incomplete_data/game_by_game_current.php?teamid=2363&year=1926
Pomona-Pitzer: http://www.cfbdatawarehouse.com/data/incomplete_data/game_by_game_current.php?teamid=2601&year=1926
Redlands: http://www.cfbdatawarehouse.com/data/incomplete_data/game_by_game_current.php?teamid=2684&year=1926
SDSU Media Guide showing SDSU as part of SCIAC in 1926: http://grfx.cstv.com/photos/schools/sdsu/sports/m-footbl/auto_pdf/2016-17/misc_non_event/history.pdf#page=32 The 1-3-1 conference record for SDSU in 1926 only works if you include La Verne.Ocfootballknut (talk) 06:54, 9 January 2017 (UTC)
P.S. I compared the PDF file you referenced to the cfbdatawarehouse (1926-1938, the only years I care about). The differences are:
1. 1926: SDSU & LaVerne not listed
2. 1929: SDSU beat LaVerne; game missing from PDF file records
3. The order in 1931 is strange
4. 1932: Can't have 3 total conference ties (has to be an even number). Online data shows Whittier without a tie
5. 1933: Really different. Whittier, LaVerne, Occidental, Pomona
6. 1938: Online data includes UCSB; printout does not. Without UCSB's game included, SDSU's media guide record doesn't work. Ocfootballknut (talk) 07:15, 9 January 2017 (UTC)
Found a 1926 article in the Los Angeles Times that shows the standings for the SCIAC, including La Verne and San Diego State: https://www.newspapers.com/clip/8740926/southern_conference_nov_15_1926_la_times/ Ocfootballknut (talk) 06:02, 4 February 2017 (UTC)
Have more definitive documentation from 1926 showing LaVerne & SDS in the SCIAC (including the 1927 San Diego State yearbook where they discuss being part of the conference). I've adjusted the template and entered links to the documentation in the talk page. Ocfootballknut (talk) 07:42, 21 February 2017 (UTC)
I just downloaded an article from the San Diego Union October 3, 1926 stating that the game they played on 10/2/1926 was their first conference game. Also on the same page an article about La Verne says the same thing.Ocfootballknut (talk) 18:30, 28 February 2017 (UTC)

Self-redirect[edit]

Hi Jweiss11. I noticed that you created Santa Barbara State Normal School as a redirect to itself. I assume that this was a mistake, so I'm letting you know so that you can edit the page to redirect wherever it was supposed to go. Thanks! —Granger (talk · contribs) 19:36, 12 January 2017 (UTC)

Cal State Long Beach vs. Long Beach State[edit]

As a graduate of Cal State Long Beach and a resident of the area, I'm not sure why we have to use a name that hasn't been correct for over half a century. Unlike San Diego State and San Jose State, Cal State Long Beach didn't request the State of California to revert the name to Long Beach State when it was changed in 1964. I guess we have to call it Long Beach State in Wikipedia for some reason, we can, but it's not correct. And when my daughters were considering going there, it was never called Long Beach State either. I'm not saying that term doesn't exist, but it's certainly not the preferred name. Ocfootballknut (talk) 03:53, 13 January 2017 (UTC)

What really matters is how reliable third-party sources refer to the school's sport teams. You can see that ESPN calls them the "Long Beach State 49ers" here: http://www.espn.com/mens-college-basketball/team/_/id/299/long-beach-state-49ers. Jweiss11 (talk) 04:27, 13 January 2017 (UTC)

Pete Pederson[edit]

Jweiss11, I know you usually add links in the "Year" column of the yearly college football seasons. I would have done so myself for Pete Pederson's article but I wasn't sure what NCAA classification the schools were respectively in during the 1940s and 1950s. Mind taking a look and filling in where appropriate? Jrcla2 (talk) 14:23, 23 January 2017 (UTC)

1980 Hawaii team[edit]

Hey, just want to let you know for WP:College baseball, I'm going to create a season article for the 1980 Hawaii team. Right now, I'm working on it in draft space at Draft:1980 Hawaii Rainbow Warriors baseball team. Quidster4040 (talk) 19:42, 18 February 2017 (UTC)

CCAA in Division II[edit]

Is there any reason the CCAA is missing from List_of_NCAA_Division_II_football_seasons, and related pages? If not, I'd be happy to add their data from 1973-1981 (when they stopped football). Ocfootballknut (talk) 07:42, 21 February 2017 (UTC)

I think it's just an oversight. Go ahead and add it in. Jweiss11 (talk) 13:40, 21 February 2017 (UTC)

Andrew Turzilli[edit]

If you would be so kind as to go to Wikipedia talk:WikiProject National Football League#NFL biography infobox or Talk:Andrew Turzilli, you would see there is an on going discussion about the issue. Do not add Kansas until consensus is reached. (talk page stalker) CrashUnderride 16:50, 9 March 2017 (UTC)

I saw the discussion. There's clearly no consensus to exclude Kansas. And it defies common sense as well. Jweiss11 (talk) 16:51, 9 March 2017 (UTC)
Of course there is no consensus to exclude, seeing as we are in the middle of the discussion. There certainly wouldn't be a consensus either way. Kmanblue and I had agreed to leave it as it was, with just Rutgers, until a consensus, either way, was reached. (talk page stalker) CrashUnderride 17:04, 9 March 2017 (UTC)

Sunday March 26: Action=History Wiki-Hackathon @ Ace Hotel
NYC-2017-WIKIPEDIA DAY-90.jpg
Wikimedia New York City logo.svg

On the last Sunday of every month, the Boardroom at Ace Hotel New York hosts Action Equals History — a unique opportunity for New Yorkers to learn hands-on in a technology training/workshop session about the mechanics, practices and benefits of Wikipedia and the Wikimedia projects. This is an opportunity for all to gather, share and work collectively towards a more robust account of history.

For this month, and following on the recent Art+Feminism campaign, we'll focus on building better edit-a-thon tools for a variety of different thematic campaigns, and user-testing them with the community. Towards a goal of advancing these tools for wider use with diverse local groups.

Newcomers are very welcome! Bring your friends and colleagues! --Pharos (talk) 05:14, 21 March 2017 (UTC)
